photoblog image Makoko, Lagos Nigeria

Makoko, Lagos Nigeria

This area has been captured by so many photographers. I have always wanted to have a shot of my own. I can say that I am obviously ready to do anything for photography. I cannot tell you how I got this cos I have a feeling my family members may send me to photography rehab if they find out. I'm wondering why we do not have beautiful resorts on the water. Hmmm...I found out that the little kids were like mermaids. I have another one of a 5 year old on his own boat.
